Blake Griffin to Enter NBA Dunk Contest

January 5, 2011

This is the NBA’s post Christmas gift to the fans. It’s most exciting player this year by far will enter the NBA Dunk Contest: Blake Griffin. After dunk, after dunk and dunk, we will finally get to see Blake on the main stage. Two words of advice: Break backboard.

From LA Times:

Clippers forward Blake Griffin, who has become must-see TV because of his slam dunks, will be in the NBA’s slam dunk contest, sources said Tuesday night.

Joining Griffin will be Washington Wizards 7-foot center JaVale McGee, Oklahoma City Thunder 6-10 forward Serge Ibaka and Milwaukee Bucks 6-1 guard Brandon Jennings, sources said.

Jennings, who attended Dominguez High in Compton before he finished his high school career at Oak Hill Academy, has a broken right foot and is expected to be out four to six weeks, but he is expected to be healthy for All-Star weekend.

Griffin, the Clippers’ 6-10 rookie power forward, has put on an amazing display of dunks that has caught the attention of NBA fans.

He’ll have a chance to show is stuff during All-Star weekend at Staples Center. The dunk contest will be Feb. 19.

Lakers guard Shannon Brown, who was in the dunk contest last year, won’t be in it this year.

The official announcement of the dunk contest participants will be this Thursday (5 p.m. West Coast time) on TNT.
